Two of the greatest obstacles that comics have in reaching readers are exposure and cost. Fortunately, the internet has provided remedies for both. Many comic book creators and publishers have put their comics online, available as full issues and at absolutely no cost to the reader. And unlike torrents or scanned files, these comics are completely legal. Here I have endeavored to collect as many of these as possible, now totalling over 300 full issues and stories, in one place.
Posted on Tuesday July 31, 2012 by Staff Writers Open source, for both the classroom and the self-educator, proves an absolutely swoon-worthy digital ocean of information. Unsurprisingly, the sciences thrive in such a climate, with the Internet positively flooded with panels, lectures, Q&As, talks, complete and incomplete classes, demonstrations, and other conduits through which education flows. Our 2009 listing featured some of the best around, but it didn’t even scratch the surface of available content. Adding an additional 100 on top of that won’t, either! All the same, though, that doesn’t mean we’ll stop showcasing some great viewing, reading, and listening from the most impassioned researchers!
What did people do in the Middle Ages? If you meet a random person on the street, what is his likely occupation? Or did people work at all? Were the Middle Ages some Communist utopia, where everybody laid around all day and things were magically produced by fairies? Of course not.
What is the Invisible Web? Is it some kind of Area 52-ish, X-Files deal that only those with stamped numbers on their foreheads can access? Well, not exactly. The term "invisible web" mainly refers to the vast repository of information that search engines and directories don't have direct access to, like databases. Unlike pages on the visible Web (that is, the Web that you can access from search engines and directories), information in databases is generally inaccessible to the software spiders and crawlers that create search engine indexes. How Big is the Invisible Web?
I have compiled a list of the most useful websites, across a wide variety of topics.. that you may find helpful,
Exceptional exhibits are highlighted each quarter. Selections from previous seasons are archived here . Please consider joining our MoOM Board of Directors won't you? You'll receive some nice swag and can lord it over your less civic-minded friends. Far be it for The MoOM to take advantage of a pop culture phenomena when selecting exhibits but, well, maybe this one time.
Courses in the history of art provide the student with an understanding of art and architecture in a cultural context. The student will be introduced to the means by which art can be critically observed, intelligently analyzed and knowledgeably discussed. ARTH 115, Survey of Art History I, and ARTH 116, Survey of Art History II, provide a survey of art from prehistoric times to the present and are the prerequisites to most upper level courses. Students considering majoring in art history should plan to complete ARTH 115 and ARTH 116 by the end of their sophomore year.
The U.S. Foreign Service Institute teaches foreign languages to government diplomats and personnel for duties abroad—and its courses are available online, for free. Which means you can access audio, texts, and tests in 41 different languages. The FSI Language Courses web site isn't actually maintained by the U.S. government itself, but the materials developed before 1989 are within the public domain (whether all of these materials came before then is not clear).
Bonnie Bassler on how bacteria "talk" : Linguistic aficionados know that humans aren't the only ones capable of complex, structured communication. Even unicellular organisms rely on a sophisticated system of chemical shifts to "chat" with one another. One doesn't need a background in the sciences to appreciate the lessons Bonnie Bassler teaches about talking. Patricia Kuhl: The linguistic genius of babies : Language development in babies begins almost immediately after shooting out of the womb. Patricia Kuhl's research explored the linguistic development of children all over the world, discovering some absolutely amazing things about the human brain in the process. Turns out babies are far more adroit at detecting and processing differences in languages than adults.
Established in 1995 Cantaria is a library of traditional and contemporary folk songs, mostly from Ireland, Scotland, and England, intended to be an educational tool for propagating the living song tradition by providing lyrics with recorded examples of songs being sung, historical notes about the songs and in some cases the sheet music as well. Cantaria currently contains lyrics for 260+ songs, with recordings contributed by a variety of singers, amateur and professional. Please see what's new to learn about recent changes to our site. We've revised song pages to print better and include new features.
